UMS Night One Travelogue: The Swayback at 3 Kings, Candy Claws at Skylark and more

UMS Travelogue, Night One 07.22.10 | Baker District, South Broadway

A guy with a pint of hooch in his back pocket was stumbling and struggling to make it across street toward Famous Pizza. After he made it across the street, he paused for a moment and leaned up against pizza joint. As I watched the poor guy, it reminded me of an important thing to keep in mind at these sorts of things: Pacing. Whether you're on your way to getting fall-down drunk or just seeing a ton of bands, too much too soon can sometimes be downright hazardous.
